Conventional nasi campur

One of the most famous dishes in Indonesia is nasi campur (mixed rice). I already wrote about the expensive variant from Kzu, today you can have a look on the classic nasi campur, which you can get in many warungs (tavern/shop) on the side of the streets in Bali. Warungs are usually small and close to the traffic, but you can get everything for take away and eat it at home or on the beach. If you decide for bungkus (take-away), you get the food in a piece of paper rolled into a funnel and when you arrive at your dinner spot you can unroll it, and use it as a plate. Indonesians are used to eat with their fingers, so you have to bring your own cutlery or do it the same way.

My favorite warung for nasi campur in Canggu is Bondowagi on Jl. Raya Canggu, between Jl. Raya Anyar and the petrol station. They are open for breakfast, lunch and dinner (in Indonesia most locals eat the same kind of food for every daytime). The best time to come is midday, because then the variety is the best, they have around 20 different dishes in their showcase and you can pick as many as you like. Usually I take 5 dishes,my favorites are rendang (dried beef in spicy sauce), tempeh manis (soybeans sweet/spicy), water spinach, telur goreng (fried egg) and jackfruit in curry sauce. The look is not perfect but the taste is delicious and the price is unbeatable, between 10.000 and 20.000 rp (0,6-1,20€) depending how much meat you choose.


The best thing about nasi campur is that it never gets boring, because you can change the variation every time.
